Bakelite was the major form of “art plastic” from the 1930s through to the 1950s. It was patented by Belgian born Leo Hendrik Baekeland in New York, in 1907, and was the first truly synthetic and thermosetting plastic. Thermosetting meant that it could not be melted or changed by heating once formed.

Bakelite applications in conservation were discontinued in the 1940s because of certain disadvantages that soon became apparent.
Like many modern plastics, Bakelite was lightweight and durable, and it could be molded into nearly infinite shapes, so its use quickly expanded as manufacturers realized its potential. ... Bakelite made perhaps its largest stamp on the world of fashion.
